I have to agree with this last sentence. Most of the git gui terms are really
not understandable to me (and even the team I introduced it too). The only way 
actually "guess" what it means is by knowing the position of the buttons and 
getting the actual command from the position. 

AFAIK it makes no senes to translate terms like "commit" to "Abzeichen" like it 
is used
in git gui. I don't know *anybody* here in my IT business environment who uses 
this word
or even would guess what it means.  Everyone is used to the Denglisch Version 
or "einchecken".

But in case you insist of translating this word (which I wouldn't!!!),
may I toss in another suggestion: "Umsetzen"
